Canadian Tire, Lordco, NAPA (all types)

Wal Mart, Gas Stations (popular types)

Describe shape of fuse, please...........

I doubt it is glass type - those are on old school vehicles

Could be the plastic type with two blades coming out the same side

Could be the cube type........

Yeah, without knowing what car you're actually talking about, generic suggestions like 89blkcivic's are all anyone can offer...

Blown Fuse

I got a 97 Ford E150 Econoline Van and the yellow fuse with that wire attached (please see picture) keeps blowing. The fuse blew (sparked and flashes in the fuse box) when I made a hard left turn on the steering wheel in a parking lot. When that fuse blew, the engine died and wouldn't start again until I changed a new fuse. I suspect that the wire is causing the problem (might have been overloaded or a short circuit some where). So, I pulled the wire out and tried to fire up the engine and this time it wouldn't start even though the fuse has been changed. Could that wire be hooked up to the ignition system or inductor coil? Please HELP....

From that picture, it looked as if someone has done a poor job in trying to add a component to the existing circuit that's using that fuse. As it's an aftermarket installation, there is no way with just that picture to diagnose the problem. Go trace where that red wire goes and you may get your answer. Without actually physically there looking at the wiring, that's the only advise I can offer you. Sparks and flashes are not something you should take lightly. If anything flammable is near the spark, it can cause an electrical fire.

Also, for something like this, don't just resurrect a 2 year old post... Start a new one (especially when its unrelated).

Try pulling the red wire out of the fuse block, before replacing the fuse. As Sp0r3 says, it's not stock, and is likely the source of the problem.

Thanks for the reply. Sorry I am new to the forum and didn't know where to place a new post. I have tried to trace that wire but it goes into a bundle of other cables and out into the hood compartment. From there, I can't see where the wires go because it is blocked by the engine and other components. What should I do? Can I run a thick cable directly from the battery to bypass it from going though the fuse?

Just disconnect it - it's something that's been added on, so it's probably not a critical component. Possibly foglights, airhorns, maybe stereo... it shouldn't affect the car's normal operation to unplug it.

If you're that worried though, take it one of the car audio sponsors (such as Soundsgood - sorry to the others, that's the only name I could think of offhand), they should be able to figure out what it does for you.
